Contemporary designer tea set teapot

Tea for two

This fun porcelain tea pot and cups set is part of Yukari Sweeney’s home range and features contemporary images of London.

It’s the perfect tea set for anyone short on space, as the two cups stack neatly on top of the teapot. You won’t want to put it in a cupboard though, as it looks great displayed out on a kitchen worktop.

The Yukarri Sweeney London tea set is available from Debenhams, where it’s priced at £18.

Textured spot teapot

Unusual spot design teapot

Spotty teapot

The homeware department at Anthropologie can be a bit of a mixed bag at times, but we rather like this white ceramic teapot.

For a start, the bone china teapot is made more unusual by a textured rippled surface. Then it’s impressed with a series of patterned polka dots, livening up the white background. Finally, the top of the teapot lid is finished off with a dash of gold.

The Spots-of-Tea teapot can be used on its own, or coupled up with a matching Spots-of-Tea lidded milk jug or sugar bowl. All three are available from Anthropologie.

Quirky teapot and coffee pot lights

Thursday, August 12th, 2010


Here’s a novel way to light a room in your home – with a teapot or coffee pot!

This whimsical range of unusual lighting is inspired by 1930s tableware. Both the white teapot light and the white coffee pot light are made from fine bone china, finished off with a sturdy cotton braid, from which they are hung.

The teapot light is Art Deco in style, with a noticeably angular handle, whereas the coffee pot light has more of a timeless appeal.

If you fancy hanging these quirky lights in your home, then each one will set you back £95. They’re both available to purchase at Liberty.

Zandra Rhodes floral teapot

Modern floral teapot

Modern floral teapot

Top designer, Zandra Rhodes, has created a new range of exclusive homeware products for M&S, including this striking black and white floral teapot.

The teapot is a nice, modern shape and the floral design is eye-catching. It’s priced at £25 from M&S.

If the design appeals to you, then there are various other matching pieces available too, so you can create your own set. For example, a dinner plate is £7.50, a pasta bowl is £7.50,a  floral side plate costs £6, the sugar bowl is £9.50 and a bowl is £6. 

We like the fact that, although all the pieces have an element of the floral design, they’re not all exactly the same – some have black flowers on a white background, others have a black background with white flowers, plus some pieces, like the pasta bowls, only have the design on part of the bowl. This helps make them more unique and unusual.

Emma Bridgewater outlet

Have you discovered the outlet section of the Emma Bridgewater site yet?

We thought we’d flag it up, as there are some great bargains on favourite designs.

The special deals are available on discontinued items and seconds – anything that is a second is clearly marked as that, but often you’d never know it was supposed to be flawed. They class seconds as pieces that have ‘minor imperfections’ or slight flaws in the design, but they’ll still perfectly usable.

It’s a good way of topping up matching pieces of existing sets, before they’ve been discontinued, or saving a few pounds on items that you would otherwise have paid full price for. Although the savings aren’t always massive, it does help that they’ve got a bit knocked off the original price.

Items available in the outlet section change regularly.

Currently on offer is the union jack four cup teapot, which is priced at £35 (instead of £49.95) and the polka dot measuring jug, which is £20 (instead of £39.95)
